What’s the best flavor combination in the world? Obviously something with chocolate, but what else? Chocolate+peanut butter, chocolate+coconut; those are two of my favorite for sure, but another favorite is probably chocolate+banana. 

I’ve made a few different mug cake recipes and I always love them. Mug cakes are the perfect single serve dessert and perfect for when I’m craving sweets but don’t want to overdo it. With that being said, I am NOT a baker. Baking scares me. I’m afraid to add too much flour/salt/baking soda/baking powder etc., so I was thrilled that this recipe turned out on the SECOND try. Woohoo!

This microwave banana mug cake will take you no longer than three minutes to make, and afterward the only thing you will have to wash is a mug and maybe a few measuring spoons. Nothing is better than a quick clean-up. NOTHING. Ok you’re right–it’s second best after a delicious homemade chocolate banana mug cake.
Chocolate Banana Mug Cake
In order to make a mug cake, you’re going to need a microwave-safe mug. It sounds like a no-brainer, but not all mugs are, so make sure yours is before you make this recipe. Once you have that, you’re going to mash the ripe banana in the bottom of the mug, then mix all of the dry ingredients MINUS the chocolate chips together with the banana. Next, stir in the milk so that all the ingredients are combined. As a result, you should have something that resembles cake batter.
Now, you’re going to microwave the cake for approximately 45 seconds or until the cake is set. This banana mug cake recipe is egg-free, so it’s ok if it’s slightly under-baked. Last, sprinkle some chocolate chips on top for that extra goodness.
